Hi! I'm Sarah from SoSarahSews, a place where I find accomplishment and sanity among raising three boys and doing housework that never is done. I've been hexingalong with Lynne and Gayle this summer and have come up with some, as my husband calls it, "funky" hexagons. I'm okay with that, and you can think that too, but it's still fun and therapeutic for me. And really, this is the only area in my life that I can say I'm "funky" in, everything else is just plane Jane.
I've posted my very first tutorial on how to make this funky fresh Lemon Squeezy Hexie. So glad that you get to read it! And feel free to pop on by my blog and follow me, because the ideas don't stop here. I've got more up my sleeve and want to share them with you! So here we go....
First you need to cut out your hexagon. This type of hexie will probably work better with a larger hexagon.
Cut your shapes out, but be careful to make sure that they stay in the same place. So when you're cutting, place the shapes exactly as they are in your hand. These are not exact measurements, so if they are not in the correct place, they may not fit.
TIP: If things get mixed up, use the triangles on the paper to line things back up like a puzzle.
In row 1 and 2, line up the straight edge on the half-circle to the straight edge of the little end piece, then sew.
When the three "rows" are sewn together, then sew row 1 to 3, then row 3 to 2. It just makes things flow easier this way.
I hope you're enjoying the hexalong. I know I've never done anything like this before, but am enjoying the process of making these little things. I don't quite have a plan as to how I'll put them together, but I like each one.
